Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Lai Fong was one of a group of Chinese marine painters who worked for the captains and merchants of the oriental trade painting portraits of their ships in oil on canvas.  While most worked in Canton, Whampoa, Hong Kong or Shanghai, only one, Lai Fong, worked outside of China in the Indian port of Calcutta. 

Although many China Trade painters signed or labeled their canvases, Lai Fong was one of the few to regularly date them.  From these dates we can see an active painter (showing 500 of 978 characters).
